I haven't even made it through 10 measures of Cole's Law and I am consistantly amazed by the sound quality. Charlie and Arielle have a great ability for mic'ing a stage and they use great gear therefore it shows in the quality of their recordings. Keep up the great work!

Incredible, My First SKB
This was my first SKB show. I had seen SK with Phil out west in the late 90's, so I knew something. But, I was completely floored this night. I was wrenched at the end of the show. I became a major SKB fan this night. The way the tunes flowed were amazing and almost telepathic. I hadn't experienced this feeling in a long, long time.
I have listened to this recording over 200 times and it continues to delight and amaze. Great job on the sound. The performance to me is over-the-top. It will never be better for me.

To me this recording is somewhat unusual in that Steve's guitar tone is very FAT. Great detail and he is pouring out the K waves. Not sure why the previous reviewer gave this an A- for sound, to me it is top notch. Could use it as a 24 bit though.
Mitch can really shred it. I liked this line up and miss Mitch though the keyboards of the new band have a nice sound as well. Great show!

Great Setlist, Great Show, Great Sound
Sound quality, as always with AP and CM, is fantastic. AJ has a nice presence throughout, and both Mitch and Steve are balanced in levels with neither being favored.
This show is a wonderful representation of what this line-up could do. The Cole's Law to start has Steve employing a VERY pregnant tone. His solo in the final third of the piece doesn't go where I like it to (see 4/27/01 Chicago for a good example of where I like them to go), but they segue directly into TH without the customary jam of recent times. I'm glad they didn't wait, as TH is arguably the song of the evening. Virtuosic. Conversational. Focused.
Pretty much all the works performed can be considered highlights - but to single a few out for special praise: Life Of The Party (gorgeous!), Five B4 Funk, H & L, and the Avalon closer all got multiple listens out of me.
Listen to it. Enjoy it. Buy it!
